75.00 usd

Live lecture by David Williamson ($75.00)

David Williamson is the IDEAL Masterclass instructor because he is an expert in so many aspects of magic. He is, quite simply, a living legend, and someone who very rarely teaches in the detailed fashion we've established with our Masterclass series. Onstage, he's larger than life, and has toured the world's grandest theaters as host of The Illusionists and Circus 1903. Up close, he's a virtuoso of close-up magic, and an IBM Gold Cups recipient. His presentations are thoughtful without being pretentious, and his handlings are poetry in motion--he has "the touch" we all aspire to. What's more, Mr. Williamson has studied with many of the greats of the previous generation, and can pass on wisdom from his many influences and mentors.

Across three classes, Mr. Williamson will cover a plethora of refined techniques with cards as well as other objects. The focus will be on technique and a mastery of natural sleight-of-hand. But at all times the material covered will be practical in nature. You'll walk away from each lesson with new material in your arsenal, as well as, we hope, some fascinating stories from David's adventurous life in magic.

Note: David is a magical whirlwind so the schedule may change or deviate from what is published above. However, you can rest assured that the vast majority of the material has never been published before so you will will be learning brand new magic and techniques from a master of magic.

    alan asks: I'm sure its obvious somewhere but what's the difference between the David Williamson masterclass lecture ($75) and the one month (Oct) subscription ($50)?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The subscription is a commitment for three months ($50 per month, for a total of $150 for three months). The $75 version is for one month, with no subscription commitment.
    • 2. Ricardo answers: The subscription is for the Masterclass Live series, each month a new master magician comes to share their knowledge with us, in October happens to be David. So basically if you want to see others, the subscription is perfect, if not the 75 is what you look for.

    Jay asks: Dave Williamson performs excellent rope magic and other forms as well. While I appreciate his card artistry I have some difficulties with card manipulation. Will his Masterclass be "broad" enough to address forms of magic other than cards?

    • 1. Steven answers: David has said that he will cover a variety of material for his masterclasses.

    Michael asks: Are any notes provided or is it incumbent upon the viewer to record - for his or her own recollection - all material presented?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Some Masterclasses do come with PDF notes. It is up to each teacher. You do get recordings of the classes in your downloads library about a day after the class.

    Todd asks: My 12 year old son would be interested. Appropriate for kids or is this more of an adult session? Would you recommend something else for a kid? Thanks

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: This is a class intended for professional magicians. That said, the teacher, David, is very good, and I suspect that your son would learn a lot, even if some things will be advanced.

Customer reviews for David Williamson: Masterclass: Live

Reviewer

Raving mad, having to learn this gem of a routine, prior to live 'actual' performance knowing how great it is to watch the bundle of energy known as David Williamson! At the card table, too!? Oh, Covid... go away!! Guess only one way to see it played out....

I'd give Masterclass Live Five out of Five stars!

I have watched a large number of Murphy's At The Table Live & Penguin's Live Lectures, both of which have some great lectures available, but there are some not so good ones as well. Vanishing Inc.'s Masterclass Live series is hands down a superior product for the money.

Number 1: You get three 1.5 hour (or longer) live lectures the each month with the same magician. This allows the featured magicians the opportunity to go into greater detail about their creative process, routine structuring, magic theory, magic history, sleights, spectator management, etc...

Number 3: On the fourth week you get to be in a zoom call with the featured magician of the month so that you can ask questions and interact with them in a way that other lectures just don't allow.

Number 4: The featured magicians often teach tricks that they have for sale as downloads (although they typically don't go quite as deep into detail), updated versions of their old effects, & they sometimes teach things that have never been seen by the public & are not for sale anywhere.

If you are reading this review and have been thinking about subscribing but haven't done so yet, what are you waiting for? If you want to learn magic or improve your knowledge of the art this is a great way to do it. If you are thinking about buying this as a gift for someone that is into magic I promise you they will love it. My only regret so far is not subscribing when this series started.

There were at least five sleights/pieces of advice that were each worth the price of admission on their own. Just stellar stuff from the voice of experience.

Best Masterclass lecture to date. All great tricks but the theory and thinking behind the tricks was even more valuable. In fact, it was (and is) priceless!

Brilliant content - love the way David presents - entertaining and instructive.

Those lectures are so great. In videos, we often miss the human part of trick's because more often than not, they presents the tricks only. I like the live aspect, the enthusiasm of the performers and the explaination about why this and why not that. Thank you vanishingInc for the great format.

 
Reviewer

Doug

I really enjoyed the class. I love David Williamson's thinking, his routining, his energy. I consider him to be the greatest magician performing today, and this Masterclass showed why. He took us through the history of the routines, how he changed elements of it, and why he had decided to change things. There were often alternative handlings for different situations, different preferences, or just different skill levels. Excellent material, very well taught.

great lecture!

Part 1: A fantastic pice of cardmagic from the beginning to the end, absolutely perfectly thought out!

Part 2: Not so strong as part 1 but a few good ideas and thoughts on the creative process and some stories. Unfortunately, the Visible Haunte'd Pack part is not included, which personally disappointed me.

Part 3: again some very strong effects with cards and a very nice coin routine!

If you are in the close-up area and especially love cards, you will definitely not be disappointed!

Good material=4. Great energy=5. Entertaining stories=4.5. Preparation=2.5 Seems like he didn't prepare or review before the session. Highly skilled magician with a congenial interaction, but also a few too many OOPS in the show.
